Jeremiah 17:5-10
5 This is what the Lord says: “Cursed are those who put their trust in mere humans and turn their hearts away from the Lord. 6 They are like stunted shrubs in the desert, with no hope for the future. They will live in the barren wilderness, on the salty flats where no one lives.  7 “But blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence. 8 They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they go right on producing delicious fruit.  9 “The human heart is most deceitful and desperately wicked. Who really knows how bad it is? 10 But I know! I, the Lord, search all hearts and examine secret motives. I give all people their due rewards, according to what their actions deserve.”
Holy Bible, New Living Translation, (Wheaton, IL: Tyndale House Publishers, Inc.) 1996.

In times of trouble, those who trust in humans will be disappointed and are spiritually weak, so they will have no strength to draw on.  But those who trust in the Lord will have more strength than they need.  Providing not only for their own needs but for the needs of others.  Are you satisfied being unfruitful or would you like to be like a well watered tree and have strength in times of crisis and even having more to share?  God makes it very clear why we sin; it is a matter of the heart. Our heart is inclined toward sin from the time we are born.  It is easy to fall into the routine of forgetting and forsaking God.  But we can still choose whether or not to continue in sin.  We can yield to temptation or we can ask God for the way out.  Those who forget God are like the tree living in the barren wilderness.  They are stunted and will wither.  But those who turn to God in times of temptation will be full and produce much fruit.  You decide which tree you would like to be.

Have a God Day!
